Overview: The Basques are an ethnic group whose roots are in Basque Country, an area located around the western end of the Pyrenees on the coast of the Bay of Biscay in north-central Spain and south-western France. The term 'Basque' derives from the Latin 'Vasco' and it is believed that the Basques descended from the inhabitants of Vasconia, a territory between the Ebro and Garonne rivers. Large numbers of Basques have left Basque Country over the past few centuries, settling throughout North and South America, particularly in Argentina, Chile, Cuba, Mexico, Guatemala, Venezuela, and the United States.
